March 8, 2019 at 2:43 pm 0

The 2019 Garden Collection is finally here!

Last year we launched our first ever collection of garden furniture for contemporary homes (you can see that right here). After such a phenomenal response, this year we're back and bigger than ever.

Verano Garden Lounge Chair
Sit back and relax in the new Verano Garden Lounge Chair

We've developed 2 new ranges of Modular Garden Sofas, some beautiful day beds and some of last years favourites in new colourways. So keep on scrolling to take a look at this year's modern garden furniture.

Modular Garden Benches

Savannah

The new Savannah modular garden unit allows total garden flexibility. Modular units are available in a single, double, corner, double with side tables, so you can pick and mix the units to suit your garden, regardless of its size.

Savannah Corner Modular Bench

For extra versitility, we have shown you how to take your dining set and turn it into 2 smaller areas to make the most of your garden.

Garden Modular Unit
Split up your corner unit to create a cosy garden hangout zone.

Grey Modular Garden Furniture
Add 2 extra single units and take your cosy corner set into a social hub perfect for parties!

The Savannah modular units are made from a seamless lightweight powder coated aluminium frame. They require no assembly at all- simply unpack and position in your garden, ready to enjoy the summer sun.

Savannah Day Bed
Push the cushioned Savannah Coffee Table up into the corner for a "never leaving this spot again" day bed.

Whats more, the Savannah Coffee Table comes with a removable cushion. This allows you to use it as a coffee table, or attach the cushion for a foot rest or, better yet, a luxurious day bed!

Bali Modular Unit

Also new for 2019 is the Bali Modular Garden Furniture. This set is super luxurious and is ideal for modern, minimal gardens. As with the Savannah range, the Bali comes in a variety of indivudual modular pieces so you can create a look perfect for your garden.

Bali Modular Corner Bench

Unlike our previous corner garden sofas, the Bali range has a tempered frosted glass side table, whereas the Palermo and Savannah both had polywood side tables. The tempered glass brings a level of luxury unlike any other.

Bali Garden Dining Set

Garden Dining Benches

Palermo Outdoor Benches

Back due to popular demand is the Palermo Corner Benches, but this year they've had a bit of a makeover...

Teal Garden Corner Sofa
The Ocean Palermo Range works great with the Dark Grey Palermo Dining Table

We've introduced not only a new Ocean Teal colour but also 3 seater garden benches with backrest. This gives you the freedom to use as outdoor dining furniture, or separate for the evening to create an intimate, comfortable setting.

Palermo and Skye Dining Set for Gardens
Mix and match to create your own personal outdoor dining set up

Mix and match your outdoor dining bench with our stackable plastic garden chairs. We've brought back the same best selling styles from last year and introduced more colours and styles, giving you optimum options for your garden style.

Palermo 3 Seater Dining Bench
Make the most of the summer evenings with the Palermo benches, giving extra comfort for long, lazy mealtimes.

Pair up 2 of the new 3 seater Palermo benches to take your garden dining set from day to night. These benches offer the comfort of a garden sofa with the practicality of dining chairs.

One small change we have also made this year is that we have removed any fittings to hold the corner units together, and replaced this with velcro straps, allowing you to keep as a corner sofa, or separate to create a more social, relaxed feel.

Willow Corner Bench and Day Bed

The Willow range has been designed in house and consists of a beautiful hand wrapped rope back. The simple grey colour palette brings depth and style to green gardens and offers the most appealing place to relax.

Rope Back Corner Sofa
The Willow Garden Corner Sofa is perfect for summer lounging.

The corner sofa is perfect for parties, while the love seat / day bed is perfect for first time buyers.

Willow 2 Seater Sofa with Coffee Table
Use your Willow Love Seat as a sofa and coffee table...
Willow 2 Seater Garden Sofa and Foot Rest
...a sofa and foot rest...
Willow Day Bed
...or as a super cosy daybed. Perfect for sunbathing (just make sure you slap on the SPF)

The cushions on these and all of our garden furniture are showerproof, meaning you can leave them out in a light summer shower and they will be absolutely fine. For heavier downpours we recommend taking them inside, just to be on the safe side.

Verano Lounge Chairs

We did some digging last year and it seems that if you don't have a huge amount of space in your garden, you'll go for lounge furniture over dining furniture.

Verano Lounger Set

We don't blame you. Even if you have a BBQ on the go, you'll spend more time sitting around and lounging than eating, which is exaclty why we've designed the new Verano Lounge Chair.

Verano Headrest

With a perfectly positioned head rest and matching foot rest if you only have limited space in your garden, make sure you make room for these.

All of our garden furniture is UV protected and designed to be left outside, meaning the colour will not fade in the sun and you're fine to leave it out all year long.

We would recommend a garden furniture cover to keep off any grit and grime, but should you choose to leave out, they're easily cleaned with a spray from the home and a wipe down with a clean cloth.

Dining Tables

Rio dining table with removable ice bucket

We have also introduced 2 new dining tables and new colour options of last years favourites such as the Koko and Palermo. This year, we've listened to your feedback and included an ice bucket to our new Rio table- making those long summer evening even more enjoyable!

Porto

Porto garden dining table

The Porto is a generous 4 seater outdoor dining table, but will easily seat 6-8 comfortably. We have new dining sets including our new Alma dining chairs, and the Ivy outdoor dining chairs (keep reading to check them out!) to suit all garden styles, from family orientated to sleek and modern.

U-shaped garden corner dining set

The beauty of the Porto Table is that it's hand size means it's suitable for small townhouse gardens or your larger country gardens. Pair with a with a U-shaped bench for all-day comfort!

Rio

Rio garden dining table with ice bucket

We love the Rio dining table. With it's handy removable ice bucket you really can take the party from day to night while maintaining all the garden style you're after.

Rio White Garden Table with Ice Bucket

When not needed, you can remove the bucket and cover the hole for a classic garden dining table. However, when you want to get the party started, simply fill with ice and your favourite beverages and keep them cool all night!

Ice Bucket

Available in white or dark grey you're sure to find the perfect addition to your garden.

Garden Dining Tables

The Koko Dining table was first launched last year, however after so many of you were trying to get your hands on it once it sold out, we knew we had to bring it back for 2019. But this year it's had a bit of a makeover.

Koko white garden dining table

Still made from powder-coated aluminium and a frosted tempered glass top, it now also comes in white! Channel those Ibizan terrace vibes in the Surrey hills!

We have also updates the small 2-4 seater Palermo Garden Dining Table to white, making sure you have plenty of style options regardless of the size of your garden.

Garden Dining Chairs

Ivy and Porto dining garden set

I gave you a little preview earlier on, but we're super excited to share with your the new Ivy Garden Dining Chairs.

Made from a sleek powder-coated aluminium frame, the also boasts a beautifully handwrapped rope back and cushioned seat.

Rope back dining garden chair

The modern styling brings all the style and detail from your interiors to your garden, proving that garden furniture is an extension of your home.

Have a look at the new Alma stackable garden dining chairs too. They are made from the same polypropylene as all of our garden chairs from the first collection, but with an updated armchair shape.

Alma garden stackable dining chair

Alma has been designed with long summer evening in mind. The curvaceous back holds you for extra comfort while packing a style punch.

How to Store Your Garden Furniture For Winter
August 31, 2018 at 4:33 pm 0
What a summer we’ve had! The bright summer mornings and long summer nights spent in the garden seemed like they’d last forever. But as the weather begins to get cooler and the clouds start creeping in, it’s a good idea to start thinking about how you're going to store your garden furniture over the winter monthsAlthough designed for outdoor use, garden furniture is best tucked away or protected during the rainy seasons. Follow our top tips so that your garden pieces stay looking sleek and fresh, ready for use next year!  

Keep It Clean

Mould and mildew can spread quickly if moisture is left on the surface. So one of the most important steps when it comes to storing your garden furniture is to clean it beforehand. One final, thorough clean before storage will help the furniture be fit for use next summertime.  

How to Clean: Cast Aluminium

We all know Aluminium garden furniture won’t rust, (and if you don’t, take a look at our Aluminium post here), but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to take care of the material when you store it away. Start by using a nylon-bristled brush to remove any dirt or leaves. Then it’s best to use a hot water and soap solution to scrub away any further marks and stains. Try to avoid using cleaning materials that are overly abrasive as they can damage the surface of the aluminium. Once cleaned, use fresh water to rinse the aluminium. You can help further polish and protect the surface by applying a coat of water and vinegar with a soft cloth.

How to Clean: Plastic Chairs  

Plastic furniture is so easy to clean. You can start by using warm water mixed with soap, detergent, or any other standard cleaning solution. For a deeper clean, you’re fine to use a tiny bit of bleach. Avoid using steel wool or anything abrasive as this can damage a plastic surface.  Plastic furniture is able to withstand the force of a pressure washer. So before storing your chairs, give them a quick hose down to rinse of any leaves or dirt.

How to Clean: Frabic Bench Cushions

  Most outdoor bench cushion covers are removable and machine washable. However, if you wash them too frequently, the protective coating will begin to wear away. If you are machine washing your cushions, a gentle wash on the coolest cycle will be all you need. For regular, light cleaning of your bench cushions, lightly brush off any loose dirt and then vacuum the surface using the handheld nozzle. Then, spot-clean the affected area using a damp cloth and fabric safe cleaning product.

Stack Your Chairs

When not in use it’s best to stack your chairs. This will help to minimize their footprint both in and outside. If you don’t have the space to store them inside, try to leave your chairs in a relatively sheltered area of the garden and cover them with a tarp or other waterproof cover. The cover for your chairs should be close fitting but not too tight so that some air can circulate around your furniture. Stacking the chairs when left outside will also give them added weight so they won’t topple over in strong winds.  

Keep it Covered

Even when stored inside away from the elements, it’s still a good idea to keep your garden furniture covered. This will help prevent dust from settling on the surface. Our garden covers are made from a high quality, heavy gauge woven fabric with a waterproof coating. This garden cover comes with a cord and eyelet so that it can be cinched in, keeping your garden furniture securely undercover.  

Store on a Solid, Flat Surface

If possible, try to move your furniture off of your grass when not in use as this will significantly reduce the furniture’s exposure to moisture. If this isn’t an option, try standing the table and chair legs in saucers or on pieces of wood preservative as this will add an extra layer of protection. For more tips on how to clean your garden furniture, make sure you take a look at our Cleaning Outdoor Furniture blog post.

Cleaning Outdoor Garden Furniture – Our Top Tips
June 22, 2018 at 4:57 pm 0
Danetti garden range cleaning guide No one wants to spend their summer cleaning their garden furniture. That's we’ve made sure the materials chosen for our outdoor range are easy to clean and fit for purpose! If you're looking for some tips and tricks on how to keep your outdoor furniture looking its best, you've come to the right place. Take a look at our handy Outdoor Range Care and Cleaning Guide...  

Cleaning Plastic Dining Chairs

What are they made of?

The chairs in our outdoor garden range are made from moulded polypropylene which is a hard wearing and durable plastic. Available in a variety of colourways, polypropylene is such a great material choice for outdoor furniture as it’s so easy to clean and maintain. Its smooth plastic surface makes it water resistant while it’s lightweight qualities make it easy to move but remains sturdy and supportive.

How do I clean it?

To clean your plastic garden chairs, wash over the surface with warm soapy water to remove any surface marks. For a deeper clean,  you can use a mild household cleaning spray or furniture wipes. Baby wipes are also a quick fix if you need to wipe a minor spill. Because the chairs are made from polypropylene, it’s fine to use an antibacterial spray on the surface. As your chairs will be outside, it’s likely you’ll need to give them a quick clean more regularly than your indoor seating.

How do I care for it?

As with any plastic, the colour can be subject to fading when left out for long periods of time. Just keep in mind that direct exposure to direct sunlight and sources of heat, over time, will affect the colouring. To prevent this, wash your plastic chairs regularly and store the chairs away when not in regular use.
All of our garden chairs, including the Lola Garden Chair, can be stacked for easy storage.

Table & Bench Frames

What are they made of?

Our outdoor dining table and bench frames are made from powder coated aluminium. A great feature of aluminium is that it’s inherently anti-rust, however, what you might not know is why... when aluminium is exposed to the elements, its material qualities mean that it develops a microscopic layer of oxide on its exterior. It’s this oxide layer that acts as a barrier to protect the metal from further damage and prevent it from corroding!

How do I clean it?

To clean the powder coated leg frame of your table or benches, first, remove any decorative cushions or furniture accessories. Then, simply wash the surface with soapy water. For more stubborn or greasy marks, you can add a mild household acid such as vinegar or lemon juice. Stay away from any ammonia, TSP or soda-based products as this can encourage further oxidation on the surface. It’s a good idea to use your garden hose to give your aluminium a good rinse. If you do this, avoid using a pressure washer or a strong setting on a garden hose nozzle as such a strong and focused stream of water could damage the finish. A normal garden hose will do just the trick. We advise that you wash your table and bench frames as and when needed when in use, but make sure you give them one last thorough clean before you store the furniture away for winter.  

How do I care for it?

A powder-coated aluminium surface not only increases the visual appeal of the aluminium but also gives the metal additional strength. This helps to reduce scratches and dents from daily use. However, we suggest keeping an eye out for small chips or cracks on the surface so you can prevent any water from entering underneath the outer layer. To further protect the surface after cleaning, wipe the surface with a little car wax or baby oil on a dry cloth as this will help give the surface a wonderful shine.

Frosted Glass Table Tops

What are the made of?

Acid etched tempered glass with a film colouring applied on the back. An acid etched glass surface works almost like the opposite of buffing a surface to a shine. Instead, it gives the glass a hazy, semi-opaque appearance. You might think the word 'etched' sounds like the surface would be rough, but this process actually makes the table incredibly soft and a dream to run your hands across!

How do I clean it?

To clean acid etched glass, spray the glass lightly with a good quality, non-streaking window cleaner.  Then wipe the table top over with a clean, soft lint-free towel. Never use anything abrasive as this will scratch the beautifully smooth surface. After cleaning, move the cloth in a circular motion to dry the glass. This will also help to prevent water marks and spots.  

How do I care for it?

Because acid etched glass isn’t an applied finish that can chip or peel off, it really becomes an integral feature of the glass. It’s the most durable possible version of a matt finish... what could be more durable than tempered safety glass! That said, there are still steps you can take to keep your glass outdoor furniture looking its best for longer. We advise not to place hot utensils straight onto the table's surface. Instead, use something such as a table matt or wicker coaster. This will prevent the glass surface from becoming marked or slightly damaged over time from the heat. Top Tip: the frosted glass surface of the Palermo and Fresco tables can be removed from the table as it’s held in place by discreet anti-slip suction pads. This means you can give the underside an in-depth clean every now and then, and before you store the table away for winter.  

Cushions and Covers

What are the cushions made of?

The construction of our outdoor cushions are made up of a foam layer with a dacron wrap over the top. The foam creates a really comfortable and cosy feel when seated, while the darcon neatly wraps the cushions to create a shapely and fulfilled appearance. Perfect for keeping your outdoor dining space looking ever inviting, all of the seat cushions in our garden range are UK Fire Retardant (FR).

What is the cover made of?

The cushion covers for our garden range are made from 100% polyester. A synthetic polymer,  polyester is a very smart material choice for outdoor cushion covers as it’s resistant to stretching and shrinking. It’s also quick drying, moisture resistant and easy to clean. To make this material even more suited for outdoor use, we’ve also applied an anti-UV treatment and a showerproof coating. This not only protects the material but makes it that much easier to clean. What more could you need!  

How do I care for the cushion cover?

Polyester is waterproof to an extent due to its coating. This means that raindrops will land and sit on the surface and roll off, rather than being absorbed straight in. The cover isn’t indestructible though! We suggest that you store the cushions inside when not in use, making sure they’re thoroughly dried before storage.  

How do I clean the cushion and cover?  

The cushion covers are removable and machine washable. However, if they are washed regularly the protective coating will begin to wear away. A cold wash on the gentlest cycle of your machine will be all you need but we recommend you don’t do this too often. For regular, light cleaning, you can lightly brush off any loose dirt or grime and then vacuum the surface. Then, it's best to spot clean the area using a damp cloth and fabric safe cleaning product.    If you can, it’s best to clean your garden cushions on a sunny, warm day. This will allow you to spread the cushions out on a sheet or on your patio.  

So there you have it!

British Summer Garden Party – A How To Guide
June 15, 2018 at 10:41 am 0
This time of year we all love a good Garden Party. Whether it's a weekend BBQ, a birthday party or just having some friends over, we've got you covered. From furnishing your garden, styling tips and how to change plans in case of rain. Read our quick tips for planning for the perfect Summer Garden Party!  

4 Seater Palermo Dining Table with Matcha Green Skye Dining Chairs

 

Kit out your Garden

Let's start with the absolute basics. For any garden party, you're going to need somewhere for your guests to sit! Depending on the size of your garden and the kind of knee's up you're having will help determine the right style of garden seating for you.  

Garden Sizing

All said and done, it's down to your own personal style and how you use your garden which will ultimately help choose your new garden furniture. But we're here to help and offer a few suggestions to help you create the garden of your dreams.  

Smaller Sized Gardens

For those with smaller gardens, you want to think about space saving garden furniture. A Pedestal Dining Table paired with 2 backless benches is the perfect option as you can easily tuck the benches under the table when not in use.  

6 Seater Palermo Backless Bench Dining Set

  Our Palermo Pedestal Dining Table comes in 2 different sizes; a 4 Seater option and a 6 Seater option. However, as your garden dining situation tends to be a little more relaxed, there's nothing stopping you keeping a couple of chairs aside for those extra guests.  

Palermo 6 Seater with 3 Seater Palermo Benches and Edie Dining Armchairs

  To match your new dining table, our Palermo backless benches also come in a 2 or 3 seater option. As before, you can comfortably fit 2 or 3 people on our benches (depending on your chosen size). However, if you wanted to have a few extra guests, you have the space to squeeze on a few extra bums.  

Larger Sized Gardens

If you have a generously sized garden, make the most of this and create 'rooms' for your outdoors. Create a chill-out area, or 'living room', on one side with the Palermo Corner Bench and Coffee Table, and a 'dining room' on the other. This is ideal for larger Garden Parties as you give your guests more space and can create a more relaxed vibe.  

White Corner Palermo Garden Bench

 

Stylist Tip: For larger gardens, add subtle pops of colour to keep your space feeling homely. Our Skye Matcha Green Dining Chairs look great with white or grey aluminium garden furniture and add a hint of warmth to reflect your garden. 

 

Grey 6 Seater Palermo Dining Table with Skye Chairs

 

Average Sized Gardens

For those typical gardens, you have the best of both worlds. Stick with a pedestal dining table but pair with the corner sofa. This allows you generous space for dining while giving you the freedom to move your table aside (possibly as a drinks station for your summer garden party!)  

Palermo Dining Set with the 4 Seater Table, 2 Seater Bench and Corner Sofa

  What's more, due to the space saving pedestal dining table, once your guests are suitably full, you can simply slide your table closer to the corner bench, clearing space for a dance floor!  

Lola and Palermo 4 Seater Dining Set with the 3 Seater Palermo Bench creating a cosy garden reading nook.

  You can pair your garden corner bench set with either a backless bench or our range of stackable, plastic garden dining chairs. Although our dining chairs are plastic, they're not the flimsy things your grandparents used to own! Our Garden chairs are made from moulded polypropylene making them incredibly strong and stable.  

Garden Party Styling

Now you have your seating and dining situation sorted, it's time for the fun part- styling your garden. Again, how you decorate your outdoor space depends on what your garden party is in honour of. So here are a few of our tips for year-round garden styling. You can always add or increase in aid of any summer garden parties.  
  • Bunting - Bunting is a must have for your quintessential summer garden party. With so many variations out there, you're sure to find a colour and/or print to suit your personal style.
 
  • Greenery - Although our gardens tend to be pretty green, where we entertain is usually paved and walled. Play around with different plants in colourful plant pots to bring some life to your decked garden area. Try different sized palm plants and trees for a Miami beach house vibe.
 

Palermo Corner Garden Bench and Coffee Table in White

 
  • Colour - Inject colour into your garden with your dining chairs. You can then compliment these with your choice of cups, plates napkins etc to create bright and fun space.
 

Contrast smooth frosted glass with wood for a very satisfying juxtaposition

 
  • Lighting - If you're hosting a summer garden party (and you get lucky with the weather) you're going to want to make the most of being outdoors. Add some festoon lighting or contemporary lanterns for soft lighting and a lovely calming mood.
 

Lanterns add warmth and interest to an outdoor space

 
  • Accessories - When we style our homes, we use objects and props that we love- the same goes for your garden! Think about adding some concrete buddha's or marble shapes to bring the indoors, out. By propping your garden as you would your interior, you're making your guests feel at ease and creating an inviting home.
 

In Case of Rain

Here in good ol' Blighty, the weather is never settled. You could be planning a summer garden party for months, the weather leading up to it is absolutely perfect but the day of your event, the rain shows up. It's a fact we've got to accept living here, but we never let a drop of rain ruin our plans!  

Palermo 6 Seater White Dining Table with 2x Palermo 3 Seater Benches

  Obviously, plan for great weather as when it's good, it really is great. But it's important to have a backup plan- just in case. There are a few things you can do such as hiring a gazebo or having a covered area as a permanent fixture in your garden. (This will protect you from the sun and also rain). But if you don't have the time or space, it's time for plan B.  

Julia shared this picture of her lovely cat, Bea, enjoying her Danetti Furniture Cover

  If the rain does end up spoiling your garden party, you're best bet is to move inside. But before you do, make sure you cover over your garden furniture. Although all of our garden fabrics are showerproof, it's always safest to keep the furniture covered or away in the garage/shed. We offer covers designed for any combination of garden furniture you choose!  

Our Garden Furniture cover is waterproof to protect your furniture from the British weather!

  What's more, our stackable garden dining chairs are versatile and trendy enough to use indoors as well as out. So cover over your table and benches, bring your chairs inside and let the festivities continue!  

The Skye Garden Chairs also look great indoors, too!

Outdoor Patio Chairs – Get Ready for Summer!
June 8, 2018 at 4:03 pm 0
Summer is just around the corner, and what better way to enjoy the warm weather than sunning yourself on a sleek garden chair! Long gone are the days of boring green plastic seating. Our collection of outdoor patio chairs and garden seating have been designed to revitalise both you and your garden space. So sit back and relax this summertime on some stylish seating that has social dining at its heart...  

Lola Garden Chair 

The curved shape and simple design of the Lola Garden Chair will create such a welcoming and convivial feel around any garden table. The contemporary look of this garden chair will instantly freshen up the feel of your outdoor space.  

Get The Look:

Here we've styled the Lola chair alongside the Palermo 2 to 4 seater garden table. This set is perfect if you're a little pushed for space, or if you don't want your outdoor space fully occupied by your dining table. With the option to seat two to four people, or to use the table as a centrepiece for drinks and snacks, this set up is incredibly versatile.  

Edie Garden Chair 

The Edie Garden Chair is a modern take on traditional garden seating. Easy to clean, lightweight yet durable, the Edie chair ticks plenty of the right boxes!  

Get The Look:

Outdoor patio chairs are incredibly versatile. Here we've styled the Edie chairs alongside the Fresco table and Palermo corner bench to create a welcoming and sociable outdoor space. The combination of the chairs and bench mixes and matches dining with lounging, while also allowing you to pull up a few extra spaces when you have more guests to seat.  

Edie Garden Armchair

If you're after slightly more support when seated, we suggest choosing a garden armchair. Coordinating with the Edie Garden Chair, the Edie Garden Armchair has space for you to rest your arms so you can really sit back and relax. You can also mix and match dining chairs and armchairs for a stylised look.  

Get The Look:

Garden armchairs are a great fit styled at either end of your dining table (this goes for indoors as well). Doing this gives the set more focus. Here we've styled the Edie with the Palermo table and bench. By combing a backless bench with the two armchairs, the look remains open and inviting yet seamlessly coordinated.  

Skye Garden Chair  

The Skye Garden Chair is such a comfy plastic seat due to the curvature of the seat back. The fluid shape means the chairs can be easily stacked for handy space saving and storage while maintaining a sleek design. The open style back is also a great feature for keeping your garden space looking open and inviting.  

Get The Look:

By pairing the crisp white frosted glass finish of the Palermo table with the colourful plastic Sky chair,, the colours really pop. Matcha green is an ideal choice if you want to coordinate with more earthy elements in your garden, such as plants and decking, while the freshness of the white table adds a hint of modern flair.

Palermo Outdoor Corner Bench with Seasons in Colour
June 1, 2018 at 4:10 pm 0
This Spring saw the introduction of our Garden Furniture Range. Made up of a contemporary collection of outdoor dining tables, stackable garden chairs and, most popularly, our Garden Bench range. We recently teamed up with Interior Blogger Jenny Kakoudakis, owner of Season in Colour, to see what she thought of our new Palermo outdoor corner bench. Take a look at how Jenny has styled the corner bench in her own stunning garden and what she thinks of the Palermo Bench and Coffee table set.    

At Home with Season in Colour

  When Jenny came to us about her Garden Makeover, we knew our Palermo Corner Bench was exactly what her garden needed. With a large patio space, Jenny wanted to create a relaxation zone for her and her friends and family to spend the long summer evenings. We love how Jenny has styled her garden bench with palm prints and fluoro colour for a true summer vibe.     The Palermo Corner Bench comes in Grey and White, and in a left-handed and right-handed option to suit all garden styles. The bench secures together with discrete screws to avoid separating when in use. However, Jenny has used her initiative and separated the 2-sides of her bench to create an outdoor living room feel. If you choose to do this with your own, just be aware you will be able to see the holes. But we highly doubt anyone will notice when you garden looks and gorgeous as this!  

What Jenny Has to Say about the Palermo Corner Bench

   

"The range is not only good looking - contemporary greys and whites and a mix of metal and wood - but it is also practical. The fabric on the cushion is for example wipeable. You know, because wine accidents happen all the time in garden parties!

The piece I chose was the Palermo Grey right-hand corner outdoor dining bench and the Palermo coffee table. They both arrived within a couple days of ordering, flat packed with easy assembly instructions and all the necessary equipment to do the job, which by the way can be done by one person easily."

   

"Now, some really nice surprises! First, two seat cushions can be added onto the composite wood end tables to create a couple of extra seats. This modular design feature makes this bench incredibly versatile and changeable to suit your seating needs.

Next up, the fact that you can not screw the two benches together, but instead leave them facing each other to create an alternative styling and more formal seating arrangement!"

  Jenny has even done a great video review of her garden makeover. Check it out below, and don't forget to let us know what you think of Season in Colour's garden.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=6&v=h8f5pstgSIQ  

Why Choose a Garden Corner Bench?

  Think about the time you spend in your garden. With our British summers being so temperamental, we want to make the most of every second of sunshine. The typical home will have a garden dining set, which is lovely- but mainly designed for eating. When the sun is shining at 3 in the afternoon, you don't want to be sat up at the table, you want to be reclining and relaxing.       That's why choosing a garden corner bench is the perfect option for you. Not only can you create a chill out zone ideal for entertaining, but the handy sizing of our Palermo Range means you can also sit up around your table. Pair with one of our 6 seater garden dining tables, such as the Fresco or Palermo dining tables, and create a comfy dining area.  

Garden Bench Seating Options

  Along with the Palermo Corner Bench, you can also pair up with our 2 or 3 seater backless garden benches. Palermo Backless benches are ideal for creating that relaxed garden dining setting. Choose 2 dining benches to sit either side of your table for a compact dining area. Alternatively, pair with the corner bench for a larger, more sociable area.     If you wanted even more flexibility with your garden furniture, team your corner bench with a dining table and stackable chairs. That way, you can separate your corner bench from the garden dining set when spending time with the family. Otherwise arrange altogether when you have extra quests to entertain.     The possibilities are endless.   If you wanted to re-create this look, follow this link to shop the Palermo Garden Bench Range for yourself.

Inspiring Garden Ideas – 3 Steps to an Ibiza Style Garden
April 20, 2018 at 4:18 pm 0
It is finally starting to feel like spring! There's no time like the present to get your garden sorted for summer, so you can really make the most of every second of sunshine. But with so many different variations of garden style, how do you know what you want? We're here to help guide you to your dream contemporary garden with a mini-series of inspiring garden ideas. Starting with Ibiza Style.  

Palermo Corner Bench and Coffee Table

  When you think of Ibiza Gardens, you think crisp, white render, azure blue oceans and cloudless skies. Safe to say good old Blighty is not that. Although, with a bit of creativity and know-how, creating your own modern, white Ibiza Style garden is as easy as 1, 2, 3.  

1. Colour

The key to creating a modern Ibiza garden is the minimal colour palette. Based in predominantly white settings and with a simple palette of natural woods, fresh greenery and blue skies, this look is surprisingly easy to recreate in the UK. However, put your own spin on things by playing with the levels of colour.  

Ibiza Style - Pinterest

 

Palermo Corner Bench, Fresco 6 Seater Garden Dining Table and Edie Garden Chair, all in White.

  For example, Ibiza villas tend to have courtyards covered in white render, balanced with natural wood furniture and potted plants. On the other hand, we tend to have luscious green gardens with wooden decking the occasional white wall or fence. Same colour palette, just different quantities.  

Palermo 6 Seater White Garden Dining Table and Skye Dining Chairs in Aqua, Slate Grey and White

  If you wanted to create an Ibiza style in your garden, be sure to choose white garden furniture. The Palermo and Skye 6 seater garden dining set is perfect for this, as the all-white colour palette works well with your existing green gardens. In turn, this creates that effortless Ibiza look.  

Palermo 2-4 Seater Garden Dining Table with Aqua Lola Garden Dining Chair

  Alternatively, for contemporary garden ideas for small gardens, take a look at the Palermo 2-4 Seater with Aqua Lola Dining Chairs. The same effect will be created, just on a smaller scale. What's more, the rich blue of the Lola garden chair mimics the colour of the Mediterranean sea, reaffirming that cool, Ibiza style.  

2. Mood

It is no secret that Ibiza is the party capital of the world. But did you know Ibiza also has some of the best chill-out zones, too? This is why creating that Ibiza feel in your garden will make it or break it. You can achieve this simply by zoning your garden space. If you have the luxury of a large garden, you can create a garden dining area as well as a relaxing chill-out space. To create that informal style, play around with your seating options.  

Palermo 6 Seater Garden Dining Table with 3 Seater Palermo Garden Benches

  Rather than choosing garden dining chairs, opt for a garden dining bench to allow for more flexibility with your seating options. This also gives the freedom to squeeze a few extra bums on the seats if needed. By doubling up on your benches this also creates a relaxed vibe, idea for those Ibiza nights. For the chill-out zone, our Palermo Corner Bench with coordinating coffee table is the ideal setting for chilled summer evenings.

  If you've not got the space to have 2 separate zones, no problem! Our garden range is crafted with an aluminium base, making it very light and easy to move around. For meal times, sit your table up against your corner bench. Then, when you want to relax in the sun, simply move your table aside and enjoy the space.  

3. Personality

The final ingredient to Ibiza Style Gardens is personality. Although the colour palette may be seen as clinical and modern, you will never see an Ibiza garden looking cold and stark.  

White Palermo Corner Garden Bench

  Play around with texture by adding cushions, rugs, and your favourite tableware to stamp your garden with your own, personal style. Stick to a complementary colour palette, by introducing pops of green and extra white highlights for a true party feel. Add candles and festoon lighting to keep the evenings cosy. And give your guests chunky throws for when the temperature drops.

Danetti Outdoor: Get to Know our NEW Range of Modern Garden Furniture
March 14, 2018 at 10:55 am 0
You may have seen over the last few months a smattering of images of our new Danetti Outdoor Range. A capsule collection of modern and contemporary garden furniture with all the comforts of inside, outside.   As warmer weather is on the horizon, we are all dreaming of those long summer nights spent with friends and family. And what better way to get the outdoor inspiration flowing than taking a look at our new outdoor furniture range. You're best to draw up your shopping list now so you're ready to enjoy every second of the warm weather! Numbers are limited so you won't want to hang around for this one...  

The Outdoor Range

While designing this new range of durable garden furniture, function, style and easy maintenance were at the forefront. We have created a versatile range of 2 seater dining tables, for smaller gardens and patios, to larger 6 seater garden dining table and luxurious corner sofas. Regardless of the size of your garden, you're sure to find your new outdoor furniture right here.  

Palermo 2-4 Seater Dining Table

  The Palermo 2 Seater Garden Dining Table is the ideal option for those with smaller gardens. You can quite happily seat 2-4 people, depending on your needs. As with all of our outdoor dining tables, the etched tempered glass top adds weight to the durable aluminium base and gives a soft, matte finish.   Team with the Lola stackable garden dining chair for a clean, minimal outdoor setting. The Lola Chair comes in Aqua, Slate Grey and White.  

Palermo 4 Seater Dining Table

Available in your choice of White or Dark Grey, the Palermo 4 seater is the perfect choice for first-time buyers and mid-sized gardens. This outdoor dining table is super versatile and can be paired with either our garden dining benches or your favourite stackable dining chairs.       Pair with the stunning Skye Outdoor Stackable Dining Chair for an Ibiza inspired designer garden setting. Available in White, Slate Grey, Aqua or Olive Green to suit your outdoor colour schemes.   Alternatively, for a more uniform garden setting, why not choose 2 backless garden benches with your 4 seater Palermo Dining Table? This space-saving dining set allows you to tuck the benches completely under the tempered glass outdoor dining table. This means you can keep the patio clear with easy access to your tabletop for those, larger parties!    

Palermo 6 Seater Outdoor Dining Table

If you have a larger garden, our Palermo 6 seater dining tables would be a great choice for you. The great thing about outdoor furniture is that place settings are much more flexible. More guests? No problem! Simply pull up a couple extra chairs or seat a few extra bums on our dining benches and you can happily seat 8 or more!   The White Palermo Range is suited for fresh, modern garden styles and works great with our Aqua or Yellow stackable outdoor dining chairs. The Grey Palermo Range works great with our deeper Slate Grey and Olive Skye Dining Chairs. Place in gardens with darker decking or painted fences for a moody, boho vibe.      

Palermo Garden Dining Benches

Bring a real designer look to your garden with one of our garden benches. From compact 2 seaters to the larger 7 seater corner sofas, these benches will bring the wow factor to any outdoor oasis. If you really want to mix things up, combine your colourful garden dining chairs with a modern garden bench for a social space you'll never want to leave.    

Corner Benches

Keep your garden style slick by pairing the Palermo Corner Bench with our 2 or 3 seater Palermo Backless Benches. This creates a very co-ordinated outdoor space. What's more, as this range of garden furniture is lightweight, you can easily move your dining table out of the way and enjoy your benches all summer long.   Alternatively, match your new Garden Benches to your outdoor dining table, as our Palermo Range comes in the same white and dark grey for a coordinated look.  Mix and match with our bright garden chairs for a fun, laid-back outdoor space.   Available in Yellow (Ginger), White and Cool Grey, the Edie Stackable Garden Chair will add colour and structure to your garden. Also available is the coordinating Edie Armchair, for added style and comfort.    

Fresco 6 Seater Dining Table

If a pedestal style garden table is not your cup of tea, take a look at the Fresco Outdoor Dining Tables. Made out of the same lightweight and durable aluminium and etched tempered glass, the Fresco Dining Table has a tapered style leg for a minimal look. Pair up with the Edie stackable plastic garden chairs for a crisp, classic style.     Add the Edie Dining Armchair at the ends of your tables for an indoor seating style. These chairs are also great for families, as children are less likely to be running around during dinner when sat in an armchair!     The tapered leg of the Fresco Dining Table offers a simple silhouette, to keep your garden light and allow your perfectly manicured lawns to be shown off.    

Koko 4 Seater Dining Table

And finally, take a look at our Koko 4 Seater Dining Table. Comfortably seats 4 with the flexibility to squeeze in more, depending on how many you're entertaining. With a similar style leg to the Fresco Range, the minimal shape of this table is ideal for compact gardens.   Pair with the Lola Dining Chair to keep the simple silhouette, or why not choose a combination of colours for a fun setting.    

What's your favourite?

By now, we hope you have made up your mind on your favourite pieces from our first range of Outdoor Garden Furniture. If you're still unsure, you can order your very own Garden Swatch Pack.

Cleaning Outdoor Plastic Garden Furniture

Snow 300 Plastic Coloured Dining Chair

Snow 300 Plastic Coloured Dining Chair £64.00

With the sun peeping through it is tempting to get out on the patio and give the outdoor furniture a clean in readiness for warmer weather that we hope is around the corner.  If you have plastic garden furniture, getting it ready for the Spring and Summer months should be fairly straightforward. If your plastic table and chairs have been under-cover then a wipe with a soft cloth and soapy water may be all that is required to remove dust and the odd cobweb.  However, if your plastic garden furniture has been out in the elements all

Winter, it will probably be necessary to undertake a deeper clean, and white plastic furniture may even require a mild bleach solution to bring them back to sparkling white.  Always protect your skin and eyes and wear rubber gloves before trying the bleach solution out first in an inconspicuous place, just in case there is an adverse reaction with the plastic material.  A mild bleach solution is also very good for removing any mildew on your plastic garden furniture. Using your soapy water (washing up liquid or car shampoo are ideal), give the table and chairs a good wash with a soft cloth or sponge, not forgetting to wash the underside too.  If your furniture is older or made from softer plastic then you should avoid using the abrasive side of the sponge as this will scratch the plastic surface.  You could try using an old toothbrush to get into any corners and crevices.

Once you are satisfied that the furniture is completely clean, rinse off the soapy solution.  A garden hose is the best way to do this, making sure that you turn the furniture over to rinse underneath.  You could also use a pressure washer but again make sure that the pressure is not too strong as it may damage the surface of the plastic.  It is probably a good idea to avoid letting the soapy/bleach solution go near any valuable plants in the garden as you are rinsing!
Happy 491 Low Stool

Happy 491 Low Stool £57.00

Allow the furniture to drip dry and then finish the drying process off with another soft cloth to avoid any water spots.  If you are feeling really keen, you could then give it all a coat of car wax (follow the instructions on the tin) to create a water repellent shine and help lengthen the life of your plastic garden furniture.
